Welcome Steve! I'm here in Greensboro and I havent made to belews yet. I know theres some great fishing on the creek. During this time of year I mainly fish the city lakes due to time restraints. Not to take away a member from BR but you should try NCangler.com you will find more indepth info on the lakes that surround NC. Stay intouch once summer hits and my wife is done teaching and my son is out of school (she owes me big time) I will be hitting more lakes maybe we can hook up. Weekends are out since I work only weekends. Tightlines Keith.

Hi Steve,

I'm in Jamestown and regulary fish City Lake in JT which is about 2 miles from my door. Landlocked, I find this lake to offer good bank fishing; maybe up to a 1/4 mile that can be fished from the bank. Last week I caught a 6# in 3-4' of water on a shallow crank, and a 3 3/4# in about 2 feet on a spinner. Not too bad for this time of year.

The lake is pretty shallow; deepest channel is about 35' when the lake is full. With water levels being down past summer and fall, I'm looking for some pretty good size bass this season.

The lake does rent boats, but the bummer is that you don't get oars, you get paddles. Rowing solo can be an exercise in frustration. A small trolling motor works well.

If you feel like taking a drive some day you may want to check it out. Good bass, catfish, huge carp, crappie, white and yellow perch, garden variety pan fish, and some pike.

I live in Raleigh, a few minutes from Falls and Jordan lakes. I'm always up for fishing if I have any free time. I have access to a boat but no way to pull it at the present time, so I do a lot of bank beating too. If you or anyone in the area want to do a little fishin let me know and we can try to set something up.

F150, Just wondering.........Did you ever live in Durham by any chance?

The Jake-

I stand partially corrected. There are Pickerel, distant cousin? of pike, in City Lake. I've never hooked one, but have spoken with a few that have. Jeff, worked at the Fish Hut signing folks in, caught two fishing a fluke in the small lagoon north of the back parking lot. Look for the dead pine tree laying out some 20' in the water.

Did you know there are also bowfin in the lake? I caught one fishing for channel cat and thought it was a snakehead; strange looking fish.

Know of any good ponds in the area?
